It had to come home with me when I first saw it. Pockets and that print!!!
This was going to be the PERFECT outfit to bring with me to Costa Rica.
I began with some cutting. I cut both of the sleeves at the shoulder and took the capri length up to a shorts level. Yep, I'm gonna have a shortsuit in no time!!
After all appropriate cutting was complete, I hemmed the bottom of each leg and gave a brand new seam to the new arms, or lack there of.
I put it in my suitcase and got it out for river tour day!! I felt somewhat like a little ranger, especially with my straw hat.
We drove a bit through some rough terrain to make our way to the Palo Verde National Park...
...where we got on our boat to tour the Tempisque River. Our captain, Miguel, was amazing.
There were iguanas everywhere. I didn't realize how close I got to take this photo. I was totally obsessed with the coloring.
We saw tons of these guys....
...and I think I was hoping that the crocs would stay under water.
We also got up close and personal with some bats. The symmetry was incredible.
Oh, and I got put in charge for a few minutes. Big mistake. Big. Huge.
We saw more crocs and this one got injured, per our guide, so his mouth was almost permanently open. I didn't see it shut the entire seven minutes we were parked. (My photos never focused on the croc, however you can see it in my new boat pal's camera.)
We saw tons of monkeys which pretty much made the entire tour.
All sorts of macaws and herons were in the trees and this one had stunning (or deadly) red eyes.
The tour was such fun! We stopped in Filadelfia on the way back too. Love the spelling and couldn't stop singing the Bruce Springsteen song from the movie :)
I had to get a photo with our guide Fabricio, because he totally ruled!
More trip pics tomorrow!*
*Trip pics include a muumuu. Couldn't go to Costa Rica without a muumuu...
